Injury forces Kish's Florida career to end

Florida redshirt junior Keenan Kish will require Tommy John surgery and has decided to end his Florida baseball career.

Keenan Kish will stay with the Florida program as a student assistant coach. He took a medical redshirt last season after throwing 5.1 innings and needed hip surgery.

In his first two seasons on the mound, Kish served as a trusted member of the Florida bullpen. He made 28 career appearances with only two coming as starts. Kish finishes his Florida career with a 1.72 ERA in 47 innings pitched, allowing 35 hits, 15 walks and recording 47 strikeouts.

He recorded the final out in the Super Regional win over N.C. State that led to the Gators third consecutive trip to the College World Series in 2012.

Kish was originally selected by the New York Yankees in the 34th round of the 2010 MLB Draft, but he turned them down and decided to attend school in Gainesville.
